A guest posting from my mother today -
This is my suggestion for a very useful piece of equipment
Bending down to switch things on is difficult for me these days and I don't move around so well either.
For some time now I have used a couple of these remotes to switch on lamps and things around my house. At Christmas we plug the tree lights into the socket controlled by this one.
This means that I can switch on the tree lights from my chair in the sitting room and then switch them off again at the end of the day.
